Dublin Fire Brigade reported a significant decrease in call outs this Halloween, relative to previous years.
They received 186 calls yesterday, which is down 480 from last year.
From midnight on Saturday to midnight on Sunday, Dublin Fire Brigade received calls reporting 186 fire-related incidents, of which 113 were fires related to Halloween.
In 2020, there were 415 fire-related calls, with 323 related to Halloween.
One person was injured yesterday with a firework exploding.
Dublin City Council said most fires did not require intervention and there was little anti-social behaviour directed to emergency service personnel yesterday.
“Inclement weather, members of the public playing their part and a significant waste removal campaign by local authorities all helped enormously with fire calls on Halloween night,” the Council said.
“We would like to thank everyone who took a responsible approach to the Halloween celebrations and also took heed of our safety advice during the preceding month.”
